UBC Botanical Garden Wedding | Deidre + Manu

A sunshine celebration for a UBC Botanical Garden wedding for Deidre + Manu.

Deirdre and Manu’s wedding day at UBC Botanical Garden was nothing short of magical. Basking in the beautiful sunshine, the day unfolded with warmth and joy, creating an enchanting atmosphere that perfectly complemented the couple’s love story.

The connection with Deirdre and Manu felt like reuniting with old friends. Having previously photographed Deirdre’s brother’s wedding, it was a reunion filled with familiar faces and shared memories. The wedding, held under the arbor, was a family affair, with lots of children adding an extra layer of delight as they ran around, infusing the celebration with an infectious energy.

What set this wedding apart was the breathtaking sunset that painted the sky in hues of orange and pink. The long table dinner under the arbor was transformed into a scene from a fairytale, with the golden light casting a warm glow over the gathering.

Deirdre, raised in Vancouver, and Manu, hailing from Spain, brought together a blend of cultures that enriched every moment of the day. Living in Switzerland, the couple’s work involves planning major sporting events, including the Olympics and the World Cup. Their international perspective added a unique flavor to the celebration, making it a truly global affair.

As the day unfolded, it became clear that this was not just a wedding; it was a celebration of love, family, and the beauty of diverse backgrounds coming together. The lively atmosphere, the laughter of children, and the stunning sunset made Deirdre and Manu’s wedding an unforgettable experience.

In the heart of UBC Botanical Garden, surrounded by nature’s beauty, Deirdre and Manu’s wedding was a testament to the timeless joy that accompanies the union of two souls.
